Head coach on Manchester United defeat.

Marcelo Bielsa gave his thoughts following the defeat at Old Trafford, against Manchester United. 

Speaking after the game, the Whites’ head coach gave his reaction to the performance. 

“In the first half we had similar opportunities to the ones they had, but we weren’t able to score them,” he explained.

“Our attacks came from combination play as we built the attack and their attacks came from the fact we were losing the ball in attacking positions.

“They would transition from defence to attack. 

“Our return was slower than their transition and this was linked to the fact that we couldn’t finish our attacks and our return was not at the speed needed. 

“Of course, it is very hurtful. 

“We will correct what was bad and try to keep the good things, but we will not abandon the way we play.”
